The Associated Press refuses to publish an "alleged" killer's name because she used the abuse excuse, but I'm not the AP.

The Associate Press wouldn't publish the name or the mugshot of Kayleene Grenier because she claims she was sexually assaulted by the person she helped murder. That's a load of horseshit! Thankfully, the other media outlets haven't followed the same policy, so here is the abuse excuse/ 'alleged" murdered Kayleene Greniger.

Minnesota woman accused of hiding machete used in beheading

A Minnesota woman was charged Thursday with hiding a machete her boyfriend allegedly used to decapitate a man she said raped her.

Prosecutors charged the 22-year-old woman with being an accomplice to second-degree murder after the fact and with third-degree assault, both felonies. Her bail was set at $2 million without conditions, the same as her boyfriend's.

She's accused of tying up and beating David Haiman, breaking his nose, after he arrived at the Grand Rapids apartment she shared with Joseph Thoresen, 35. She untied him, then Thoresen punched him repeatedly, the complaint said.

Prosecutors allege Thoresen later ambushed Haiman along a road near Ball Club and used a machete to decapitate the 20-year-old Hibbing man. Authorities found Haiman's torso and head Sunday. The woman allegedly hid the machete in the couple's apartment.

According to the complaint in Itasca County, the woman had told Thoresen that Haiman had sexually assaulted her.

The Associated Press generally doesn't name people who say they're victims of sexual abuse. Her attorney didn't return a phone message seeking comment.

Thoresen is charged with murder. His attorney, Darla Nubson, declined to comment.

Itasca County sheriff's investigator Mark Weller told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that he "can't confirm or deny" whether the sexual assault occurred.

"We are looking into that," Weller said.

Both Thoresen and his girlfriend remained in jail Thursday. They are due in court Tuesday.

Here is a non-AP article that had no problem publishing Kayleene's name.

Im Sorry this Minnesota incident is starting to sound too much like the JP Orlewicz beheading from a decade ago, the story starts out as ISIS or Al-Qaeda sounding but the details end up more insane because you expected to end up with a jihad stereotype. it ends up being about White Trash who beheads somebody they call rapist for mob hit reasons or for drug deal reasons over meth.

Update for the David Haiman Muder

GRAND RAPIDS — A contested hearing has been set for the Grand Rapids man charged in connection with the murder of a Hibbing man in June.

Joseph Christen Thoresen, 35, appeared before Itasca County Judge Lois Lang Tuesday afternoon for a hearing in which his attorneys requested a contested hearing be set to challenge some of the evidence against Thoresen.

Thoresen and and his girlfriend, Kayleene Danielle Greniger, 22, of Grand Rapids, were each arraigned in October on grand jury indictments of two felony counts of first degree murder and two felony counts of second degree murder.

Thoresen had previously been charged with one count of felony second degree murder and Greniger had previously been charged with one felony count of felony accomplice after the fact to second degree murder and felony third degree assault. The two were charged in connection with the death of David Haiman, whose remains were found near Ball Club the morning of June 26.

During Tuesday’s hearing, Thoresen’s defense attorney, Steve Bergeson, told the court they were looking to challenge some of the evidence against his client, and that they were also looking for clarification on the disclosure rules pertaining to the transcript of the grand jury proceedings.

Lang had previously ruled that only the attorneys for both the state and defense could have access to the transcript, but the defense attorneys could share sections with their client as long as they kept the transcript in their possession at all times.

Bergeson said the transcript was more than 800 pages and they wanted to be able to leave portions of the transcript with Thoresen for his review. Bergeson later pointed out they feel “this is evidence.”

Prosecuting attorney Todd Webb said Thoresen should be able to review the transcript as long as it was in the attorneys’ possession and that Thoresen should not have sole possession.

GRAND RAPIDS, MN (MNN) - A Grand Rapids woman on Friday pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the beating, stabbing and beheading of a Hibbing man last June and agreed to testify against another defendant in the case.

An Itasca County grand jury previously indicted 23-year-old Kayleene Greniger and 36-year-old Joseph Thoreson in the death of 20-year-old David Haiman.

Prosecutors say Haiman was assaulted by both defendants and then executed by Thoresen in retaliation for an alleged sexual assault of Greniger.

She faces up to 30 years in prison. Thoreson awaits trial and, if convicted faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison.
